Short term visitors arriving into Thailand without a long stay visa or extension have to be reported to immigration within 24 Hrs after each entry into the country or change of accommodation.
Tourist who are staying in hotels / guesthouses etc, don’t have to do this themselves as the hotel / guesthouse is responsible for the registration.
Tourist who are staying in private accommodations (visiting family/friends or renting house etc) have to be registered by the landlord or owner of the premises.
Long Term Visitors:
Long term visitors arriving into Thailand with a long stay visa or extension have to be reported to immigration within 24 Hrs after their first entry into Thailand or when moving permanently to a new address.
